Choutea Bend - Mar 24, 06
Started fishing around noon. Water temp. was 48. We tried trolling, live bait and even tried to snag some Paddle fish. We caught nothing. Then about three I switched off to some deeper diving crankbaits and the fun was on. We ended up with about 30 and cleaned 25. The biggest was 2.5, but most were in the 1 to 1 1/2 range It ended up being a real nice day and we caught some nice Sandies.
